The staff were more than helpful. The food was exceptional as was the service in the dining room. The room was restful and well appointed and although a short walk this meant it was quiet. The location was good and the lounges comfortable.

Truly lovely setting over looking the market place with beautiful rooms, a lovely relaxing atmosphere and delicious food, especially the taster menu although have been many times. Compliments to the team. Highly recommended and cannot wait to return again.

Called in for a spot of lunch on Easter Saturday which was a busy time but easily found a nice spot in the bar area, which is a nice relaxing room. Service was good with a friendly female member of staff attending to us. We selected a Caesar salad and a good pint of Theakston's Bitter. We were previously advised... More

Booked as a romantic getaway for my girlfriend and I to celebrate our anniversary and what a celebration it was. The room was beautifully decorated with lots of lovely little touches, the champers and strawberries delivered to our room on request and really lovely and welcoming staff even when we were having a good old nosey around the building!

The dinner here was good although small portions on the Market menu and a bit surprised that it was exactly the same menu available both nights we stayed with only 3 choices so a bit stuck if you wanted something different you had to choose from the more expensive menu. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and great... More

It is with sincere regret that I post this review of the disgraceful treatment I have been subjected to by this hotel today. This establishment has long been a favourite of mine and has previously benefitted from glowing reviews from me. I have been a very frequent visitor over the last ten years and have brought my closest family and... More

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We enjoyed afternoon tea also which we ate in front of a roaring fire in theTudor room. A memorable occasion. The hotel is... More

Wonderful food, hotel and staff brilliant excellent location , next time will ask for a view of market square to avoid a brick wall at the back ..... but would definitely stay again ..... look on Groupon or other special vouchers ..... then call direct and price match. .... They will charge you same but you pay on departure .

Our evening dinner was excellent and beautifully cooked. Breakfast was plentiful with locally sourced ingredients. Service throughout was friendly and efficient. We would return again and would...

We stayed for just one night to celebrate our birthdays. We wanted a gourmet experience and so booked the six course tasting menu as well. We arrived around 3.30 and checked in promptly and very efficiently. When we entered the room I was blown away by it. It was big and beautifully styled and felt more like being in a... More
